2008 Ford Shelby GT500 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)


I grew up in the 60's and 70's, road in and drove the fastest cars of the day-Shelby GT 500's, Charger 440 6- packs, SS 396 Chevelles etc. None of them hold a candle to the 08 Shelby. It is just plain scary fast. But, if you want a nice Sunday drive and keep it at 60 mph it will run all day at 25 mpg. The live rear axle is not the handling problem you may have heard about, even on bumpy entrance ramps and curves. Yes, you feel the bumps but the car stays on track. The shifter takes time to break in so be patient, the brakes stop the car as fast as the engine can accellerate it. My car is Vista Blue and it turns heads. I can't thank Ford enough for building this car at an affordable price.

Best Features

Power, handling, fuel economy, appearance

Worst Features

Interior is just lacking something, its not "inviting." I can't put my finger on it exactly.
